This restaurant is great for most any group except a very large one. Their menu has innovative soups and salads and they also have sandwiches and other treats. They tend to use ingredients like pine nuts, fresh mozzerela, goat cheese, etc., and they have decent coffee and a full bar. They have a fresh pasta bar and delicious sauces. They have a reasonable kids' menu with fresh buttered noodles and actually nice-looking chicken strips.

Somebody forgot that a good dining experience includes good service. I've now given this establishment two opportunities to impress me. Twice they have failed and will not get a third. If you want a good meal that is hot from service that is ICE cold you've found your place. 15 min for a bar order. POOR wine service!!! Our friends had to watch our food arrive 20 prior to their own. We felt as if we were bothering the employee. Do yourself a favor. Good food can be had at a number of quality eateries in the Traverse City area. Don't waste your time, patience, and money for a mediocre experience. Really.

I have eaten and drank at Poppycocks several times and I have always been very impressed by every aspect of the place. Their food is very unique and tastes exceptional. Their martinis are fabulous, and their service has always been friendly and prompt. Anyone who has had a bad expereince there should definitely give it another try because I'm certain you'll change your tune.

We went to Poppycocks for lunch on recommendation from our hotel front desk clerk and were hot happy with the food or service. This was the most disappointing dining experiences we have had in a long time. The service was horrible. The hostess simply plopped our menus on the table and promptly walked away without saying a word to us. Our server wasn't at all friendly and left us waiting. I noticed other customers looking around for the server waiting to have their order taken as well. The food was edible, but could be described as marginally okay. I would not visit Poppycocks again and do not recommend it to others.
